Whether you’re planning a holiday party, a graduation party, a housewarming, a wedding, or a fundraiser, some delicious barbecue food can make any event even more fun and exciting. Almost everyone loves a good bit of barbecued meat and can’t say no to some mouth-watering, grilled-to-perfection food.

Stubby’s BBQ Restaurant is a staple of Arkansas and was founded in 1952 by Richard “Stubby’s BBQ” Stubblefield, Sr. Since then, we have built up our reputation for our slow-cooked ribs, beef, pork, and chicken over fragrant smoldering hickory logs. Throughout the years, we have been able to gain a following of devoted customers and recognition from food critics. If you’re looking for good food and southern hospitality, then Stubby’s is the place for you.

Did you know that we also offer catering for events? If you haven’t tried our food yet, or aren’t sure about whether Stubby’s barbecue would be a good fit for your event, here are 6 reasons why you should definitely visit Stubby’s BBQ:

1.      We Offer a Variety of Meats, Sides, Desserts, and Beverages

We’ve been cooking up the barbecue for over five decades at Stubby’s, so we know what we’re doing. We usually offer a selection of meats, including slow-cooked ribs, beef, pork, and chicken. We also have a special selection of holiday meats that you can ask for at your event, including petit jean hams, turkey, pork loin, prime ribs, beef tenderloin, and Alaskan king crab legs!

We don’t just stick with meat, either. If you choose Stubby’s to cater your event, we’ll take care of the side dishes, desserts, and beverages too. You can enjoy our delicious beans, coleslaw, potato salad, deviled eggs, pickle, peppers, peach cobbler, sweet tea, and sodas.

2.      Our Arkansas Barbecue Sauce Gives You Unique Flavors and Taste

There’s something special about Arkansas Barbecue sauce that you won’t find in any other barbecue sauce. If you want an authentic Arkansas food experience for your event, then the sauce is a must-have! And nobody does it better than Stubby’s! We have a secret sauce recipe that is 61 years old and well-known in Hot Springs.  No one else gives you the same taste or captures that unique flavor of our special recipe.

3.      We can Cater Large Parties and Events

Not many restaurants can offer delicious, home-style food for large parties. But at Stubby’s, that’s not a problem. We can easily cater to a party of 10, 20, 30, 40 or even 60 people. You can feel free to invite as many guests to your event as you please and rest assured that we can prepare and deliver delicious food for all of them to enjoy.
